If you've used WordPress before then this book is ideal for you, the book lays out plans from the first chapter to give information on customizing your WordPress site. It also goes into depth of how to make your own templates for which I found very useful, also how to make your very own themes, which WordPress is all about. General information on widgets, plugins and themes are given so that you can get the best out of WordPress. The book is aimed at website developers and people who want to learn the in's and out's of WordPress.

This must be one of the best written and informative books on programming I have read during the last twenty-five years. Very clear and concise, I would think it essential for anyone interested in Wordpress web design.
